Global Nomads (TCKs)

Hiking in Glacier National Park in Montana
Our kids have a different childhood from the typical American kid.  There is a term Global Nomad or TCK used to describe this type of  lifestyle.

Third culture kid (TCK, 3CK) is a term used to refer to children who were raised in a culture outside of their parents’ culture for a significant part of their development years.

Some of it is great, like having new experiences, traveling the world, making friends in many cities, states, and countries.

Some of it is more challenging, like missing family and friends that are scattered in many cities, states, or countries or answering the dreaded question, "Where are you from?"
Celebrating the 4th of July in Congo
As parents, we have enjoyed seeing them grow and mature in so many ways through the process.  We know that in each place, God's hand is on their lives.  That's the most important thing!

Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:
